GAME REPORT


BC Khimki 84 vs. Tuborg Pilsener S.C. 73

Tuborg Pilsener could not take carry over their opening win in the Turkish League to their FIBA Europe League debut. Tuborg defeated Darussafaka (67-54) on the first day of League action at the weekend, but struggled in Moscow against Russian side BC Khimki.

BC Khimki have employed foreign players for the first time in their history and with the  likes of Ruben Wolkowisky (ARG), Oscar Torres (VEN) and Melvin Booker (USA), they boast a formidable line-up.

But it was actually the homegrown talent that led the way and forward Igor Zamanskiy paced his side with 17 points in Khimki’s 11-point victory.

The key to the game proved to be Khimki’s defensive intensity in the third period. Up just 1 point at halftime (40-39), the home side turned the screws in the 3rd and outscored Tuborg 22-12.

It was enough to turn the game in their favour and they rode out the 4th quarter for an opening day victory.

As well as Zamanskiy, Torres and Wolkowisky added 14 and 13 points respectively.

Tuborg were led by new signing Aerick Sanders who replaces Glenn Whisby. Sanders had a game high 21 points and 13 rebounds in the loss.
